In my last message I said that Goldschmidt discounted the homeobox type
mutations in a saltational process.  I actually meant R. E. Snodgrass,
famous insect morphologist, although he was most concerned with the serial
homology of appendages among insect segments.  I guess once you're over 30
your memory goes....

The reference is 

Snodgrass, R. E., 1935.  Principles of Insect MOrphology.  New York,

and also probably

-----, 1952. A Textbook of Arthropod Anatomy.  Ithaca, New York, Comstock
Press (reprinted by Hafner in 1965).
